Lower Division Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Stevenson School’s lower division (PK–Grade 4). I look forward to meeting your family and helping support your admissions process.

We believe that children learn and grow most happily and effectively—and engage with confidence in our community and the broader world—when their days are characterized by safety, trust, respect, belonging, and inclusion. Our commitment to these core values helps ensure that we meet our students where they are, inspire their grit and grace, keep them safe, honor their differences, bear witness to their development, and celebrate their progress.

To take the next step, please complete an inquiry form! Once we receive your inquiry, we’ll begin corresponding with you about the admissions process, special programming on campus, and upcoming events.
